This Myers Award for Outstanding Student Paper is given annually for the best technical paper presented by a student.

The award recognizes the late Dr. Phil Myers and his wife Jean for their lifelong devotion to students and SAE International.  Myers was a renowned expert on internal combustion engines, and before his retirement, a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Together with his wife, they set a high standard for excellence, concern for students, and involvement with SAE International.
